IRS audits taxpayers with incomes below $25,000 and those with incomes of $500,000 or more at higher-than-average audit rates. In general, audit rates for all income levels have decreased since 2010.
The IRS is significantly short-staffed. In general, the processing time is faster for incomes below $25,000 as the audit process is less complicated.
